Was the last conflict in your house over screen time? You’re not alone. A new study finds 62% of parents experience family conflict over screen time. “Just one more minute” turns into five then before you know it comes the yelling or tantrum. We’ve all been there. If it’s not fighting about screen time with your child, it’s a disagreement about “when or for long” with your significant other, spouse, partner, (whomever!) over your kids’ screen time. But there’s hope. Conflict around device time is significantly reduced and, in some cases, completely resolved when parents set and establish limits and a predictable routine and by keeping devices out of sight. Research shows us that simply seeing a device triggers the desire to use it. What if you could eliminate the screen time battle?
TechDen helps do just that. It’s an app + a smart charging station that manages screen time that also securely stores and charges devices. With TechDen you set and establish screen time limits. When it’s not a time to use your device it simply goes in The Den, where it’s stored, charging and most importantly: locked and inaccessible.
When devices are in The Den kids don’t even think about wanting to use it. Eliminating the fight about when and for how-long screen time battle. Instead they find themselves spending more time with family, experiencing more face-to-face interactions, outdoor play and physical activity. All the essentials for kids health, happiness and well-being!
With TechDen boundaries are clearly defined and established. Additionally, TechDen teaches healthy tech habits by establishing a predictable routine that works with a reward system to reinforce positive behavior. Just like we teach our kids healthy eating habits it’s more important than ever before to teach healthy tech habits too. The app helps hold us to the screen time rules we set as parents. Keeping devices in The Den helps keep devices out of sight and out of mind. And helps to avoid the screen time battle.
Less screen time. More family time.
